Call me crazy, but I actually like Dwayne Allen more than Fleener. He'd be cheaper, and he's really flashed when he's had the opportunity. It's a hard task to be drafted the round after your franchise quarterback lands his college tight end in the second round, but he's really built up. Last season he only had 400 yards, but he quietly had 8 touchdowns and 24 of his 29 receptions went for first downs. I really think he could explode.
You're actually not wrong mentioning Cutler - he and Bennett do not get along one bit. Not that anyone likes Cutler, but there has been a lot of tension there. He's been in a difficult situation given the Bears had Marshall and Jeffery, and have now added Kevin White. Two pro-bowl wide receivers, plus Matt Forte, and he still put up 1,500 yards and 11 touchdowns over the past two seasons with Cutler playing off and injured more often than not. He's got a healthy track record, and I think he could make a big difference. Big motherfucker, too. 6'6" and 275, but he moves like he's a lot smaller. I think Johnny would have a lot of fun with him. Who knows, though, I'm just spitballing. There is every chance they're not interested in trading him, especially if they end up in range of a new QB they really like.
I had a quick look at some of the rookie prospects, too. Didn't watch anything, but I see a lot of big guys touted for their athletic ability. Like PGL has said recently, we're really missing Jordan Cameron, so it'd be nice to try and catch up at TE.
